Jordana – Face The Wall

An album that loses none of Jordana’s inherent charm, but dials everything else up to the maximum.

Label: Grand Jury
Released: 20th May 2022


When Jordana first arrived, it was her bedroom pop chops that made her an artist of note. Crafting songs through GarageBand that showed talent that stretched the four walls of her room, the potential was scary.

On ‘Face The Wall’, that promise is fulfilled, and then some. From opener ‘Pressure Point’ – a Caroline Polachek-level bop injected with a dose of realness – it’s an album that loses none of Jordana’s inherent charm, but dials everything else up to the maximum. ‘Play Fair’ stomps like a lo-fi Goldfrapp buried under dirty laundry, while ‘Go Slow’ drifts on the breeze with addictive ease.

It’s ‘To The Ground’ that really stands out though; a glistening gem that’s unafraid to get a bit dirty in the mud, it’s the kind of sleeper hit that takes hold way after the lights fade.
